Example Forecast Fri. - Weekend Outlook 29.05.10 - 30.05.10

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

not a lot has changed pressure-wise, except a few minor changes…….. A fat Low of 1002 millibars will move in from the West hitting the South West on Saturday, before continuing on it’s Easterly track into Sunday (crossing the mainland UK and slowly occluding in North Eastern Europe on Sunday). Scotland will be dominated by a weak Icelandic High of 1016 millibars, which will dominate the area by Sunday, stopping anything from getting in there. Meanwhile in the South West Sunday will see a new Mid Atlantic Low of 982 millibars slowly start to take effect, as next week nears.

OVERALL

Well there is now more swell than before so, read your respective areas (and surrounding ones) to get the new details. There will be waves in the South West and quite a few, but the key will be the getting enough swell that is not too windy / onshore. Suffice to say if you see it clean ride it quickly!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well now it’s a challenging weekend for you I’m afraid. Has your practicing kept you in trim, can you get out back and not get in the way?!

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
